Sen. Bernie Sanders is urging his supporters to stand behind Hillary Clinton for the presidential vote, but he is facing pushback from some, according to The New York Times.

"I am not the world's most partisan person. But the truth is, if you look at Donald Trump's record, what you find is that this guy is a pathological liar," Sanders, the runner-up to Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, said.

Former Sanders supporter Lois Corcoran plans to vote for the Green Party's Jill Stein. She said she refused to accept the idea that people who oppose Trump must vote Clinton to keep him out of office.

Corcoran said that Sanders more closely matches Stein's message, not Clinton's.

"I feel very betrayed by him," Corcoran said of Sanders, who endorsed Clinton in July. "He says it's not the man, it's the message, but yet he's jumped over to the Democrats' message," 

At Sanders' speech, attendees held up signs that read "No Corruption, No Clinton" and "#StillBernie."

At the Sanders speech, Will Coleman held a poster that read "Career Criminal" with a picture of Clinton.

"It crushed me that Bernie Sanders flipped over and he is campaigning for her," Coleman said.

During the speech at Lebanon High School in Pennsylvania, Sanders discussed his plan to support Clinton.

"On issue after issue, there can be no doubt in anyone's mind as to whether Hillary Clinton is the superior candidate, because in every respect, she is. I intend, as a United States senator, to do everything that I can between now and Election Day to make certain that Donald Trump does not become the next president of the United States," Sanders said.

Sanders supporter Lauren Glass is choosing Clinton, but with reservations.

"Am I going to be non-participatory and exist in an ideal world and just not vote or write in a vote, a name?" she asked. "Or am I going to move toward progress even if that's small and incremental rather than the leaps and bounds that you had hoped for and that Bernie represented?"

The Washington Post reported that 90 percent of consistent Sanders supporters said they would vote for Clinton.
